Turnstone Press is pleased to announce that Sarah Ens' second collection of poetry, Flyway, will be hitting shelves in 2022.

Sarah Ens's second book of poetry traces connections between the Russian Mennonite diaspora and disrupted migratory patterns of grassland birds, returning to Manitoba's endangered tallgrass prairie in a meditation on the intergenerational impact of human and ecological trauma. Drawing from the rich tradition of the Canadian long poem, eco-poetics, and familial history, Flyway migrates along geographical, psychological, and affective routes to explore the complexities of home. 

Sarah Ens is a writer and editor from Treaty 1 territory (Winnipeg, MB). Winner of The New Quarterly’s 2019 Edna Staebler Personal Essay Contest and Room Magazine’s 2018 Short Forms Contest, she launched her debut collection of poetry,  The World is Mostly Sky, with Turnstone Press in 2020.
